The effect of a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug commercially available in eye drop form (sodium diclofenac) was assayed for its ability to affect biofilms formed by clinical Staphylococcus epidermidis isolates. Biofilms produced by one strain positive for a slime-associated antigen, suggested to be expressed by more virulent strains, was not affected by sodium diclofenac treatment. On the other hand, biofilm produced by the slime-positive, antigen-negative strain showed dramatic alterations… CONTINUE READING
